's going to talk about mitt romney. both sides raising those expectations. governor romney making it clear that during the debate wednesday in denver he will aggressively defend his record and beat back any miss characte characterizations from president obama that come his way. mr. romney has to have a big, good night on wednesday and definitely they are trying to plan, bill at this point, he's going to try to have one. bill: the billboard shows results from pennsylvania from 2008. this was a state that was heavily targeted by both parties. in 2008 pennsylvania went blue, it went democrat and barack obama won the state by 11 points over senator mccain 55-44%. on the map behind me senator mccain's counties are in red, barack obama's counties are in blue. you see where senator mccain did so well in the countryside. here in pittsburgh, ala againee county is where barack obama one. you go over to the southeastern part of the state and look how democratic this went. this is chester k-pt, delaware county right here where mitt romney is today. an easy winner. all these areas around philadelphia,

. both presidential candidates, president obama and governor romney are smart individuals. this is going to be a very good debate, because both are policy wonks and they're not afraid to answer a detailed question. >> nera, this morning chuck todd said to be honest -- they're both smart men, but neither is a great debater. he thinks the vice presidential debate will be a lot more interesting. however, mitt romney has 20 primary debates under his belt and president obama has none this time around. if you look at history, the past four incumbent presidents have had a difficult time in the first debate. give me your take on this. >> the president has had numerous press conferences. obviously piece asked questions about policy and he has to answer them. he has to practice having sharper answers, because you have a limited amount of time. i do think, though, that governor romney has a disadvantage in that he hasn't been very specific. he's going to have to be very specific. the president will hold him accountable to facts and figures. you know, the president knows his policies. at this point

think it will remain? >> i think time will tell. there's certainly an effort on the part of both president obama and his republican challenger, mitt romney, to have a serious second look at sanctions, to try to figure out what additional economic measures are necessary to bring iran's nuclear program to heel. i think that, to a large extempt, is going to determine whether there is military action against iran. quite simply, the sanctions we've applied so far are not having the requisite impact on iran, and more needs to be done. jenna: that was a very interesting editorial in the ine washington post" this week, you said just to review for our viewers, the sanctions are working in some ways, they're not working in others, and can they need to be enforced greater, in your opinion. let's talk about what the american people should expect or trust in this process. you know, why should the american people trust diplomacy when it comes to iran? has there been any evidence that sanctions or diplomacy in the past has worked with this regime and this country? >> well, those are two separat
slow with both men trying to be cautious, neither able to land a punch. then it will happen. romney will deliver what is clearly a prerehearsed moment, a sound bite, something about obama not delivering on a promise, something about the economy. he will expect the president to defend himself. and when he does, romney will pounce. he'll say obama is not running again bush. get obama to pass the buck on the tough kmeeconomic recovery land his sunday punch. i suppose president obama knows this is all coming and is preparing to do with it. a month ago all romney had to say was obama has done his best, got his stimulus, his health care program and here we are. i think that might have nailed it a month ago. but something's changed. it could be something as definite ace bill clinton's speech. that's romney's problem and it's a big one.
